Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin has addressed to bashers to “think before you click” and shoot down those who support the hashtag #YestoABSCBNShutdown.
On her Instagram post on Wednesday, the actress said: “Isang pakiusap. ‘Think before you click’. Mga cameramen, utility, art department, technical department, production, actors, directors, caterers, producers, lightmen, crew, tents, etc.. Mga ilan sa libo-libong tao sa loob ng isang network. KAMI po ang ABS-CBN.”
Locsin mentioned the reported 11,000 employees who might be removed should ABS-CBN fails to renew its franchise, which is set to expire on March 30.
The actress also shared her life as a “Kapamilya.”
“Sa ilang taon ko po sa ABS-CBN, nakilala at minahal ko ang mga tao dito. I have listened and known their stories — kung anong mga pinag-iipunan nila, magkano pa ang utang, sino ang nagkasakit… lahat pinagpapaguran para po sa pamilya nila,” she added.
She also denied rumors that she did not renew her contract with the network giant because it is closing.
“I may have not renewed my contract with ABS since I’m preparing for my wedding, but these men will always be my family and I will stand by them. Mahal ko sila at hindi po ito drama kundi kung sino po ang mas magdurusa sa sitwasyong ito. Bago po tayo magsalita, isiping mabuti kung makakasira ba ito ng buhay ng napakaraming tao. Kung ito ho ba ang tamang solusyon? Kung meron pong pagkakamali man, gawin po nating tama. Hindi po ang pagpapasara ng isang network ang makakatulong sa amin at sa pamilya po namin. We have families that rely on us kagaya nyo rin po. Konting pag-unawa lang po. Isang pakiusap.”
The Kapamilya actress ended her post with the hashtag #NoToABSCBNShutDown.
